Cachapoal Valley
Cachapoal Valley is a central wine zone in Chile known for its premium red wines, especially Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere. It forms the northern half of the Rapel Valley region and is located between the more prestigious Maipo and Colchagua Valleys to the North and South. The valley shares its name with the river flowing through its centre. The valley is well sheltered from the cooling influences of the Pacific ocean and enjoys a temperate Mediterranean climate.
